If you don't have at least one Opinel Carbon Steel knife you're missing out.  ;-)
Luke 22:36 (NIV)
36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

    Good knives for the money.  They aren't good as pry bars but use one as it was designed to be used and you'll be happy with it for a long time.  The No. 12 folding saw is also a stand out in the line-up.   Very nicely made and ridiculously light in your pack for what it does.  Its not made for heavy cutting but mine has saved my bacon a couple of times when something stupid happened ( broken tent pole ) and I was forced to improvise.   

    The older Opinels - if you can find them - are a little better IMO.  The steel seems a bit harder, holds an edge a bit longer and they had larger nail nicks in the blades.  If you find one somewhere for ten bucks or so - pick it up.  You can thank me later.   ;-)
